Little Haiti Officially Recognized In Miami

On Thursday, May 26, 2016, after a long sixteen years' effort, the Miami-Dade Municipal Commission unanimously voted in favor of designating 'Lemon City' as 'Little Haiti'. 'Little Haiti' will have the boundaries roughly between 54th Street and 79th Street, and Northwest Sixth Avenue and Northeast Second Avenue. The announcement came before hundreds of Haitian-Americans who were present in Miami's city hall waiting anxiously to hear the outcome of their long fight and this victory was almost impossible without the effort of four former district commissioners.

New national identification card for Haitian to be open in Miami Haiti consulate

Flying to Haiti from Miami for the sole purpose of obtaining a national identification card will be a thing of the past as the Miami Haiti consulate will begin issuing new cards within the next month.

The Haitian diaspora is necessary to Haiti, as such, having the link between Haitians living abroad and the Caribbean country be easy is highly important. Even though there has been a three-year delay on the calling of the local elections in Haiti, the reports are that people always flock to the necessary office when they arrive in the country, making the issuing of their papers a number-one priority. Still, making the advent of diaspora voting work isn't without its kinks, as the country has yet to test whether the program will work due to the delay in the local elections.
